New Chelsea star Jorginho has an fantastic penalty routine

Justin GreeneAug 13, 2018

Kante opened the scoring for the visitors, meaning he has already equalled his previous best tally for goals in a Premier League season.

It came in the 34th minute when N'Golo Kante's mis-hit strike from Willian's cross bounced past Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

Maurizio Sarri feels Chelsea will continue to improve under his stewardship, but the club's new coach will not aim to repeat his winning formula from Napoli.

Steve Mounie was agonisingly denied by the crossbar as Huddersfield created their fair share of opportunities in the first-half, but the Terriers lacked quality and a bit of fortune in the final third.

It was telling that Chelsea's first two goals came from their only two shots on target in the first half, and that one of those was a penalty, awarded for Christopher Schindler's foul on Marcos Alonso after a nice flick from Ross Barkley. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.

The two-goal deficit deflated the hosts and the Blues took complete control after the restart, further extending their lead through Pedro as Sarri recorded a convincing victory in his first league game. I felt the energy in the stadium and we were unlucky in the first half. Their play was much more fluid; they adopted the style of football Sarri likes his teams to play.

"There has been a misunderstanding that he wanted to get a move for the wrong reasons, but he was pushing to go out of Chelsea because of his child", Henrotay told BBC 5 live Sportsweek programme.

And in the first game of the season it brought some reward with the French World Cup victor scoring the opener against Huddersfield.

Fans who have grown accustomed to seeing Kante sit in front of the defence and break up play with his matchless tackling ability and knack for interceptions were surprised to see the French midfielder occupy a more attacking position for large stages of the game. He did not want a new defender to help with a switch to a back four from the three-man alignment preferred by Antonio Conten and neither was he keen on another striker, despite the struggles last season of Alvaro Morata.

"We (Chelsea) have to play at another speed".
